Karl Havens Excellence Endowment
Karl E. Havens, the director of the Florida Sea Grant program since 2007 and a professor of aquatic ecology at the University of Florida, passed unexpectedly on April 26, 2019. Havens was a leading international expert on aquatic research, management, education and outreach. His area of expertise included the response of lakes and estuaries to natural and human-caused impacts such as nutrient enrichment, drought, climate variability and hurricanes. Your gift to this endowment in his memory will support students and research at Florida Sea Grant affiliated institutions in the areas of limnology, coastal and estuarine water quality, and harmful algal blooms.
